100 push-ups? Very nice.

Skipping (jumping rope) is great for shedding timber. I think I'll be doing some skipping this week. Thanks for the idea.

I assume you are excellent Bam, what with your boxing background.

Handy enough, although I haven't skipped properly in a long time. I just do the odd bit to show off in front of my daughters. Grace is a good skipper, she can do a few fancy moves.
